A wise man once said “Iceland is like everything you see in the movies and think can’t possibly be real”.

Now it is time for you to get to know what is behind these words. Iceland is very likely the most hidden gem in Europe and one of the most amazing things about it is that when explored distances are not long and along the way you will always see a million other things, a road trip in Iceland is like nothing else and now we have created the perfect 4 days in Iceland.

The tour will start with a 2 day exploration trip on Iceland’s South Coast, first stops are at amazing waterfalls the staggeringly beautiful Seljalandsfoss and the power stunner Skógafoss. Both of them are extremely photogenic but at the same time truly unique in their ways and can be explored in different ways, from above or behind! The South will also bring you the mysterious vista of Reynisfjara Black Sand beach and the cozy charming national park Skaftafell before entering the magical wonderland of a blue crystal ice cave.

The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Diamond beach are there for day number two where you will get a chance to sail in between the icebergs in a way you will never forget. Get up close and personal with some of mother nature’s colorful work.

The third day is dedicated to the must-do Golden Circle tour with a cozy twist as the day will end at the Secret Lagoon hot spring, Iceland’s oldest swimming pool. A true treat after a day of amazing sightseeing stops and historical locations (Gullfoss, Geysir and Þingvellir).

The forth day is where you step into the Snæfellsnes peninsula and your expert guide will show you all the best the lava covered peninsula has to offer including the famous Kirkjufell mountain, Arnarstapi and Hellnar villages and Djúpalónssandur pebble beach.

Let’s join to explore all the best the island of volcanoes, and glaciers has to offer.

Practical Information

What to bring: Warm clothing, waterproof jacket and pants and hiking boots..

Please note

Our main ice cave to visit is the Crystal Ice Cave. At times it is inaccessible however and in that case we will visit another ice cave. During the summer months (April-October), we will go to The Ice Cave Under the Volcano ice cave. If it is inaccessible, we will do a glacier hike instead.

1. Day

Our day will begin in Reykjavík where you are picked up from your pre-chosen pick up location. This is when you will meet your guide for the next days and get a first sighting of the like-minded travelers that have chosen this fantastic adventure like you!

We start by driving the South Coast, stopping at breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls, first “the one you can walk behind” Seljalandsfoss and then the powerful Skógafoss. After we will stop onto the mysterious Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach where the mystical and fairytale-like Reynisdrangar basalt columns stand tall against the strong waves that break ashore. There is a natural lava cave that has formed into the tuff mountain Reynisfjall and for many this is a true highlight when visiting Iceland.

Lunch will take place in the charming little town of Vík where you will have a view

Next, we drive through what seems to be a no-mans-land while making our way to the beautiful Skaftafell National Park, known for its ice caves, glacier views and excellent hiking trails.Crystal Ice Cave

Now the adventures truly begin as next up on your guided adventure is a visit to a naturally formed ice cave on an outlet glacier from Europe’s largest ice cape, Vatnajökull. You are in for a true milestone experience as you get up close and personal to some of Mother’s Nature best artwork. After having taking in all that the glacier has to offer we will check in at our hotel and have some delicious dinner.

2. Day

Today your glacier adventures continue as our first stop will be the world-famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where glittery iceberg float around in a seal paradise. Take a stroll around the lagoon and indulge in the beautiful scenery or join on an optional boat ride (can be added as an extra) in the lagoon where you will get a chance to go even closer to these eerie turquoise ice blocks. Next up, we take a short walk to see more of these truly awe-inspiring icebergs on the Diamond Beach where they have drifted ashore and now sunbathe on a black sand beach, shimmering like diamonds on sunny days. This place truly is a sight for sore eyes.

On the way back to Reykjavík we will make some extra stops at well chosen locations your guide will choose each time.

The night is spent at a hotel in Reykjavík.

3. Day

It’s time for the Golden Circle. You will be picked up at your Reykjavík accommodation and this time we are heading inland for the must-do Golden Circle tour. The first stop is at the historical Þingvellir national park (often spelled Thingvellir or even Pingvellir) where you will get a chance to view the meeting of the continental plates in a truly unique way. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to one of the world’s first parliaments, beautiful waterfalls, a stunning lava field and views like never seen before.

Strokkur geyser Iceland

After a brief lesson in Icelandic history we join for the Geysir geothermal area where the impressive Strokkur will spout up into the air giving all those who are there to see goosebumps and awe-looking faces. This is truly a must-see while in Iceland. The circle is then perfected with the last stop at the glacier originated waterfall Gullfoss, e. The Golden waterfalls where rainbows are likely to appear as the two-story showstopper gushed down it’s canyon. The waterfall can be viewed from two different locations, both recommended!

Bathing in the secret lagoon with friends

The day is then topped with a dip in the warm waters of the Secret Lagoon, Iceland’s oldest swimming pool.

The night is then again spent in Reykavík, Iceland’s lively capital.

4. Day

After breakfast you will be picked up again now for a completely different exploration as this time we will be making our way North West onto the Snæfellsnes peninsula, home to the famous Snæfellsjökull glacier Jules Verne made so famous in the book, Journey to the center of the earth.

Snaefellsnes-Iceland-tour

 

The day is packed with memorable stops. First we will explore the farm Ytri Tunga where seals play all year around, not at all shy from humans and show off on the beach. Then there is the picturesque Arnarstapi, everyone’s favorite Instagram spot a little coastal village and after the close-by Hellnar where we will take a break to have lunch with an epic view.

The adventure will next take us to the Vatnshellir Lava Cave where you will have the option (at an extra cost) to explore Iceland’s underworld in a spacious lava cave which sits right at Snæfellsjökull’s glacier roots.

Djúpalónssandur pebble beach is our next destination where  your guide will tell you fascinating stories of shipwrecks and adventures around the area.

Kirkjufell mountain on Snaefellsnes

For many the last stop is the best stop on this part of the tour as we end the day on Snæfellsnes peninsula with a stop at the queen of all mountains, mt. Kirkjufell which towers above Grundarfjörður fishing village.

On the way back we often stop at the Gerðuberg basalt columns paradise, which is just yet another reason why Icelandic road trips are the best! We will drop you off in Reykjavik at around 20:00 (8 pm).

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

View our pick-up locations in Reykjavík.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Special Tours, has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summer time).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

How do I get to Reykjavik from Keflavík International Airport?

The drive from KEF airport to Reykjavik takes around 45 minutes. If your flight is delayed, please call our customer service team to go over what options you may have.

These are the two most common ways to get from the airport to Reykjavik city:

Airport Shuttle

The cheapest and most convenient way of getting to and from Keflavik International Airport. The shuttle drops you off at the BSI Bus Terminal downtown or takes you all the way to your hotel or the closest drop off location. If you’re arriving on the same day as your tour departures we highly recommend to pick BSI Bus terminal as your pick up location.

Book your airport transfer in Iceland.

Taxi

The quickest way to get to Reykjavik city is by a taxi. The taxis can drop you off at any of our pick-up locations. Taking a taxi is always more expensive than the airport shuttle.  

For further information about getting to and from Keflavík International Airport.

How is the weather/climate in Iceland?

There is a saying in Iceland, if you don’t like the weather just wait 5 minutes. This might sound like a joke but it is strangely true! Thanks to the beloved Gulf Stream, our country enjoys a cool, temperate maritime climate, this means refreshing summers and fairly mild winters. So basically, Iceland maintains a surprisingly moderate temperature all year around. For further information about the weather in Iceland and how to dress for it.

If your tour includes a glacier activity it’s very important to dress appropriately. Dress in 3 or 4 upper layers such as a light t-shirt (preferably wool) next to the skin, then a fleece or heavy wool garment, topped off with a waterproof windbreaker. Jeans are not recommended for our trips as they become very heavy, cold and uncomfortable to wear when they get wet. Lightweight hiking pants, track pants or long cotton pants are best and then wind/waterproof pants over. We also recommend using sunglasses and sunscreen even if it is cloudy due to the high UV and sunlight reflection from the glacier.

You will need sturdy hiking boots that fit crampons for the glacier hiking tours.

What is tipping like in Iceland?

Tipping is not a requirement in Iceland although it is permitted and is well received in most cases.

What is internet access like in Iceland?

Iceland is a very high-tech country and we actually have one of the highest rates of Internet usage in the world. Many restaurants and cafés, especially in Reykjavik, have free Wi-Fi access, so if you have a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone you can get Internet access almost anywhere. All of our vehicles also have free Wi-Fi.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

Should I bring mosquito repellent when traveling to Iceland?

Here is the plus side to a cold country like Iceland. No dangerous insects survive here! Iceland has about three areas where some mosquitoes have now settled but nothing you will have to worry about on our tours. So, to sum it up, no you will not need any repellant!

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

For further information about the difficulty ratings and descriptions.

 

What is it like to drive in Iceland?

Driving in Iceland can be tricky for two different reasons. The first being the weather conditions, especially in the winter months. The second reason is that if you’re not experienced in driving in conditions such as ice and snow then it could become dangerous.

If you are choosing a self-drive tour or to meet on location then make sure you have checked the driving conditions to make sure it is safe. At road.is you can find all the latest updates about travelling around Iceland. You should still check in the summer months just to make sure there is no storms or other types of weather warnings.

What type of safety can be expected on our tour?

Vehicles are equipped for both summer and winter driving conditions, and drivers are very experienced driving in difficult conditions.

Before starting any of the activities, participants will receive a safety briefing highlighting the safe and proper use of equipment, the role of guides during the trip, and the significant risks and hazards involved in their activity. The safety briefing will also cover potentially foreseeable scenarios that may arise and explain how participants should react in such circumstances. Our guides will also outline their expectations of participants during the trip where needed and address any specific questions or concerns that may arise during this time.

Any medical conditions or personal health concerns that may jeopardize your well-being or affect your ability to meet the physical demands of the trip must be clearly communicated to the trip leader before the tour start. Any medications you may require for minor medical conditions (asthma inhalers, etc.), should be kept close and you should bring it with you on the trip if possible. It is important that you notify your guide about such medications and their whereabouts before setting off.

Do I need any insurance before going on an Arctic Adventures tour?

As with any and all world travel, we strongly recommend having travel insurances that can provide cover if you need to cancel your travel reservation with short notice. We also recommend that you have personal health insurance coverage when participating in any adventure activities in Iceland.

What are the main advantages of booking a multi-day tour with Arctic Adventures?

Our multi-day tours are operated in a minibus which will give you a small group experience and a better connection with the guide.

Accommodation is included during your multi-day tour which is often booked far in advance. By booking with us, you don’t have to worry about finding an accommodation during the time of the tour. Staying overnight in the countryside gives you the opportunity to explore Iceland further and experience places that you would normally not be able to on a one day tour. Note that Adventure packages do not include accommodation.

You’ll have an English speaking licensed adventure guide throughout the tour that will be able to tell you about everything you will see along the way and knows where the best locations to stop by are to give you the absolute best experience.

What kind of rooms can be expected when booking the multi-day tour with Arctic Adventures?

When booking with Arctic Adventures, you are guaranteed an accommodation at a nice country hotel and/or a guesthouse. The hotels we have partnered up with are all of the same standard and offer nice rooms with made-up beds. The rooms come with private or shared bathrooms, depending on your booking. The standard room is a twin room but it’s possible to request a double room or a triple room, with no extra charge.

If you are traveling solo, you will have to add the single room fee if you wish to have a single room.

All hotels have free Wi-Fi. Towels, a hairdryer and a kettle are accessible at all of the hotels. Hotel breakfast is included!

I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

A single supplement is available if you want to have your own room, but you are not required to pay a single supplement. If you are a single traveler and do not wish to book a single room, you’ll be roomed with another traveler of the same gender.

Are meals included in the tour?

If your tour includes an accommodation, breakfast is included during the tour at the hotel/guesthouse restaurant. Meals and beverages are otherwise not included on your tour. However, we will be making stops at restaurants and convenience stores where you will be able to purchase all necessities.

You should count on spending around 8,000 ISK (80$) on food each day per person. Cash is not necessary, as credit cards are almost always accepted. Having a small amount of cash doesn’t hurt though.

Which type of meal options are available for me on the tour?

Breakfast is included at all the hotels we stay in during the tour. The breakfast will be a typical breakfast buffet, offering bread, toppings, cereal, yogurt, fruits, coffee, and tea etc.

Your guide will also find a good place for the group to eat lunch. We always try to choose places that have a wide selection of dishes on the menu, so there will be options available for everyone. The dinner is usually at the hotels we stay at for the night.

What is my luggage allowance on a multi-day tour?

For multi-day tours, each participant is allowed to bring a small backpack and 1 piece of luggage weighing a maximum of 20 kg (44 lbs).

* The combined dimensions of each bag must not exceed 158 cm (62 in).

* It’s possible to store your luggage with us in Reykjavík while you are on your tour, for a small fee. We highly recommend storing the luggage in Reykjavík to help us reduce our carbon footprint.

* Please note that luggage storage is not refundable.

Does this tour suit me?

We do welcome participants of all ages older than the listed minimum age for each tour. We have people of ages ranging from 8-99 years joining our multi-day tours.  Our average group usually consists of participants between the age 20-55 years. We do get a lot of solo travellers joining our tours, as well as families and friends.

If you have difficulties participating in any of the activities included in the tour, for example, a glacier activity, you are more than welcome to skip it. You can explore your surroundings in the meantime or wait elsewhere. Our guide should be able to drop you off at a nearby place where there are some services available.

What will the average driving per day be?

We drive on average around 300 km (186 miles) per day on our multi-day tours. You will be spending approximately 4-5 hours in the car each day. We do of course stop on multiple locations throughout the tour for sightseeing, activities, bathroom breaks and lunch stops.

I'm not sure I have all suitable gear, do you offer any for rent?

If you are not sure that you have suitable gear for your tour, we offer some necessary items for rent. For most of our multi-day tours, we rent out waterproof jackets and pants as well as hiking boots. You can book these items and more under the selection “Extras” in the booking widget when booking your tour on our website.

If you have already booked the tour and wish to add some rental gear to your booking, you can do so at least 24 hours prior to your tour starts.

Is it guaranteed that we will see the Northern Lights during the tour?

Most of the hotels we use during our tours are remotely located and therefore ideal to spot the northern lights. If the forecast is in your favor, then it is more than likely that you will be able to see the magical show put on by the dancing northern lights during your tour with us. Most of the hotels offer a Northern Lights wake up call up on request if they lights are spotted.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore we can unfortunately never promise that they will be seen. Their appearance depends upon atmospheric and weather conditions. The best time to see them is between September and March when it’s dark and clear. The sky needs to be as dark as possible, so the best places to see them are well away from city lights (that’s where we are going!).

For more information on the Northern Lights, please have a look at our Northern Lights information.

If we arrive in Iceland on the same date as we booked our tour, could we miss out on it?

We always recommend booking a multi-day tour starting at least one day after arriving in Iceland. If you’re flying in from the US or will be landing early (4-6:30 am) you should be able to join the tour, but some risks would follow (i.e if the flight gets delayed) and could, therefore, miss out on the tour.

How do I book a tour with Arctic Adventures and what information do you need from me?

There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call our office directly, the phone number is +354 562 7000. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.

How do I pay for a tour with Arctic Adventures?
  1. You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. If you choose this way then you will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip.
  2. You can pay via phone, the phone number is +354 562 7000.Please Note: However you pay, you will always get a voucher: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!
When is a booking for a tour with Arctic Adventures confirmed?

A booking is confirmed when you receive a confirmation email. If you think you have made a booking and have not received an email confirmation, please send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form, and we will figure this out together.

What currency do you accept?

We process all payments in Icelandic króna (ISK). Prices in your currency might vary slightly depending on the conversion rate set by your card issuer.

Arctic Adventures is not responsible for currency changes between different currencies.

Is there a participation minimum?

Most of our tours have no minimum but there is a minimum of 2 people for a few of our trips. If you are interested in a trip that has a minimum of 2 persons and are travelling solo we can take down your information and contact you if more people book the trip.

Do you do private departures for any of your tours?

Yes, we arrange private departures on request. Most of the tours we offer can be arranged as a private tour. If you wish to have a private tour arranged you can contact us through email custom@adventures.is.

Please have a look at all of our private tours.

Do you have a waiting list for tours?

We, unfortunately, don’t have a waiting list for our tours but feel free to check the availability sheet on our website as all updates will automatically be made to the sheet listed in each tour‘s description. We also offer a lot of different adventure tours around Iceland so chances are that we will have a similar version of the tour that you were originally looking for.

How does the refunding procedures work when we cancel a tour?

If we cancel a tour you have booked with us you will receive a 100% refund. The refund process is different depending on the way you booked the tour.

If you booked the tour on our website we will start the refund as soon as we know you will not be rescheduling and you will receive a separate email with the confirmation once the refund has been processed. It can then take a few days for the amount to show back up on your bank account once the refund has been processed and we, therefore, ask you to be patient.

If you booked the tour through a booking agent you will need to contact them to receive the refund. We will confirm with them that the tour was cancelled and the refund process will start on their end. Arctic Adventures only receives a payment when the tour has finished, this means that your payment is still with the booking agent and therefore, the refund will be processed by them.

If you pay with you card via email or phone you will need to contact us the same way again to be refunded.

I want to book but a member of my group has not reached the minimum age, what can I do?

We can not accommodate a person that has not reached the age limit on the tour. We put great value towards the safety of our customers and the minimum age policy falls under this. The minimum age requirement is decided by our operational managers and is dependent on each activity and it‘s difficulty ratings and can, therefore, vary between tours. We ask you to try to understand that this is based on safety procedures and we can therefore unfortunately not make any exceptions to this rule.

Arctic Adventures is a part of VAKINN which is the official quality and environmental system within Icelandic tourism. VAKINN provides validation of insurance, safety and regulatory requirements which supports increased quality and safety within the tourism industry.

The tour I am trying to book has less seats available than I need, what can I do?

Our website shows the correct number of available seats left so we can unfortunately not accommodate you and your group if the number of your group extends the number of available seats left. It is not possible to squeeze additional participants onto the departure as we have really strict policy measures as to how many participants are assigned to each guide on our tour departures. This is of course done with our customers safety in mind, so we do hope that you understand.

Which payment methods does Arctic Adventures accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club for all countries.

In addition, we offer various local payment methods in many other countries such as UnionPay and JCB (Japan Credit Bureau).

Do I need any insurance before going on an Arctic Adventures tour?

As with any and all world travel, we strongly recommend having travel insurances that can provide cover if you need to cancel your travel reservation with short notice. We also recommend that you have personal health insurance coverage when participating in any adventure activities in Iceland.

What type of safety can be expected on our tours?

Vehicles are equipped for both summer and winter driving conditions, and drivers are very experienced driving in difficult conditions.

Before starting any of the activities, participants will receive a safety briefing highlighting the safe and proper use of equipment, the role of guides during the trip, and the significant risks and hazards involved in their activity. The safety briefing will also cover potentially foreseeable scenarios that may arise and explain how participants should react in such circumstances. Our guides will also outline their expectations of participants during the trip where needed and address any specific questions or concerns that may arise during this time.

Any medical conditions or personal health concerns that may jeopardize your well-being or affect your ability to meet the physical demands of the trip must be clearly communicated to the trip leader before the tour start. Any medications you may require for minor medical conditions (asthma inhalers, etc.), should be kept close and you should bring it with you on the trip if possible. It is important that you notify your guide about such medications and their whereabouts before setting off.
